Subject: New Install of Citadel

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hello Everyone,

I just installed Citadel 8.24 on a AWS Instance running Amazon EC2 Linux.

I was going through the post installation checks to make sure that everything is running correctly and when telneting onto port 25 from the localhost. I get a response from 'sendmail' instead of the citadel server.

Where is a good place to start with disabling sendmail and making sure that citadel is listening on that port.

 

-Much appreciated,

 

Jtek

/sbin/service sendmail stop

/sbin/chkconfig sendmail off

Now, stop and restart Citadel and try again.

Hello there,

i ordered a certificate from the CA. Installing it into citadel wasnt a problem. It works.

Now i have a problem with the webcit service - it is only using the standard certificate.

How to implement the certificate into webcit?

 

Greetz,

SKB

WebCit has its own keys/ directory. Just copy the files over from the keys/ directory of Citadel server, and restart WebCit; voila!

Citadel database takes a lot disk space , as it is:

[root@Citadel ~]# df -h

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/sda2             9.9G  3.9G  5.5G  42% /

ligym: Well, you have two choices. You can either turn on auto-purge, or you can increase disk space...Everything in your database is in your database and will continue to consume disk space.


FWIW, I highly recommend LVM for everything except /boot, rather than hard partitions...with LVM, you have the ability to increase a filesytem's size (within the constraints of the LVM PV and/or available physical disk space), whereas with hard partitions, you're mostly stuck with the partition size.

The auto-purge and log auto-delete is both turned on,but seems not work properly. 

I have tried to find way to define the auto-purge policy,but don't know how to use command like SPEX find in docs.

Well, i'm trying to use auto-purge .

Can the script 'database_cleanup.sh' help reduce the used space?

                                                                                                   Thanks anyway

If you actually did delete a lot of content from your database, the database_cleanup.sh script will dump-and-load your database and the result will be that it only consumes the amount of disk required by actual data.

greetings!
i have been unable to update the citadel packages via the fedora 20 yum update process.

the various citadel packages are identified for upgrade, yet are never installed due to a conflict between the versions of files that citadel requires (old versions) and the versions that are installed by fedora.

e.g. the terminal outputs:

---> Package webcit-8.24-1.5.x86_64 0:8.24-1.4 will be updated
--> Finished Dependency Resolution

Error: Package: webcit-8.24-1.5.x86_64 (home_homueller_citadel)

Requires: libical.so.0() (64bit)

Removing: libical-0.48-40.1.x86_64 (@home_homueller_citadel)

    libical.so.0() (64bit)

Updated by: libical-1.0-4.fc20.x86_64 (fedora)

    ~libical.so.0() (64bit)

 

what is the recommended approach here?

thanks

Thanks a lot for reply. I actually did this, but it looks like an extra kludge, with extra security concerns thrown in, that in the view of simple LDAP authentication seems unnecessary. So, let's, for now, put LDAP woth SSL/TLS on the wishlist. Hopefully it's easy to implement... Thanks a lot! Chris



Dear all, 

I also had the same concerns about wanting to use LDAPS so as not to send authentication data in clear text across a network. A Debian bug - #627338 - exists for this; Clint Adams outlines a patch but it did not work for him. His work, however, inspired me to create a patch that - I think - supports LDAPS. Clint Adam's key insight on this matter is that the more-versatile ldap_initialize() should be used instead of ldap_init(). The former supports LDAP URIs, so one can specify - for example - ldaps://adserver.example.org/ or ldaps://adserver.example.org:636 as a Citadel host-name.

I changed the code so that an ldap_initialize() is attempted first on config.c_ldap_host alone with ldap_init() as a fall-back. I also replaced the deprecated ldap_get_values() with ldap_get_values_len(), adjusting variables accordingly. Finally I replaced displayName with samAccountName in the Active Directory (AD) LDAP code-branch for setting the Citadel fullname since one's AD log-in does not always match one's displayName.

Please see the attached patch-file, which is against Citadel 8.24. I would be grateful if others could try this. Please consider the patch for upstream incorporation if it is deemed useful and sufficiently robust. Note that I have tried to make it compatible with previous Citadel LDAP versions by falling back to the old behaviour (except for the  samAccountName aspect).

Note: if using LDAPS, please put all host information - including the LDAP scheme and port - in the Citadel LDAP host-name configuration variable. The config.c_ldap_port is not used when ldap_initialize() is invoked. You should, for example, configure a Citadel LDAP host-name as ldaps://adserver.example.org:636 rather than configuring a Citadel LDAP host-name as ldaps://adserver.example.org and a Citadel LDAP port as 636.

Note: under Linux hosts, the server on which Citadel is running must trust the SSL certificate presented by the LDAPS server. Please see here for more details.

Thanks again to Clint Adams for putting me on the right path.

Best wishes,

Lloyd Kamara

Subject: Per-message expire policy?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Dear all,

I am aware that Citadel currently supports per-floor and per-room message expire policies. It does not appear, however, to offer such a policy at the message level. This might be useful if one has time-limited messages to post in a room where a 'one size fits all' message expiration policy does not apply. For example:

  • 'Free pumpkins' in the Level 4 kitchen: left over from fairy godmother's transmogrification work-shop. [only want this message until - say 5pm]
  • Wealthy industrialist requires small, robust, light, artificial pumpkins for insecticide experiment. Contact Norman Osborn on... [show this message for two weeks]
  • For hire: exquisite horse-drawn carriage, comes with horses, coachman, footmen and livery. [only want this message until Midnight]
  • 'Wanted: pumpkin for porch decoration. [only want this around until October 31st]

This looks like it would require modifications to source files under modules/expire/*. Is that correct? Is there some way of achieving the above without code modification? Do others consider such a feature worth-while?

Best wishes,

  Lloyd Kamara

i have a strange issue here now. after i updated to the new versions of the packages for citadel, i am now unable to receive emails to the admin account in citadel.

i can send emails from that account and i can send/receive from other accounts in citadel fine..

when i send emails to the admin account they just disappear, with no error messages.

i see no faq or support pages that are obviously relevant to this problem. anyone got any tips?

Hi,

 

i have my own little mailserver, with just a few accounts. Some of my mails wont reach another server that uses greylisting. i m just getting a mail back that i was greylisted.. i think citadel doesnt resent mails properly..  does anyone know, wher ei can setup the retry/resend functionality for citadel? or if the error could be corrected elsewhere?

 

I would be happy if someone could give me a hint what to do.

 

btw.. why isnt there a real forum for support? in this strage room thingy you even cant search for support questions/answers properly.
